How to Select and Prepare Butternut Squash

Butternut squash has a smooth beige skin with slightly bulbous base. Typically weighing between 2 and 3 lb., this winter squash has an orange-yellow flesh with a sweet, slightly nutty flavor. To prepare, simply cut off both ends of the squash and peel before cutting squash lengthwise in half. Scoop out and discard the seeds and stringy fibers, then cut squash into cubes or slices as desired. If desired, squash can be cut up in advance. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator up to 24 hours before using as desired.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have never liked squash but my mother loves all kinds of squash and au gratin. I have never liked squash but my mother loves all kinds of squash and au gratin. So I decided to cook this for her. I varied the recipe just a bit, I used some organic ingredients . I also used soy flour instead of flour, it takes a little longer to thicken but it works great. I did use low sodium chicken broth, also. It smelled so good I just had to try it. It is so delicious, I am going to make this recipe many times. I loved the sweet of the butternut squash with the butter taste of the cheeses (yes I said cheeses, I used to different kinds) and the right amount of salt with the bacon. This is a receipe that will get kids and adults to eat butternut squash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 8 years old Grandson won't eat any vegetables. My 8 years old Grandson won't eat any vegetables. I made this for supper the other night and he couldn't stop eating this. When his mother came to pick him up He wanted her to go home and make it right then. I think this is a great testament to the recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for the first time tonight and will definitely make it again. I made this for the first time tonight and will definitely make it again. I used a knife to remove the skin-it's easier than peeling it and used the food processor to slice it thinly. It a nice change from the usual squash recipes out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i absolutely love this recipe. i absolutely love this recipe. The only unfortunate thing is that when I make it, it's all mine because my DH doesn't like squash and my daughter doesn't eat bacon. Maybe that's a fortunate thing :-)
